First crafted at the Long Bar in the Raffles Hotel in Singapore in the early 1900s, the Singapore Sling is known for its bright pink hue and foamy fruit punch cap. The drink combines gin, cherry brandy, and citrus juices for a sweet treat. Sling comes from the German “schlingen” meaning to swallow and refers to spirits diluted with water or soda.
